Aww man. I never would have thought I'd read a spin-off about Junko from this franchise and be entertained. I'm gonna miss this one.

Nogi tweeted out that this series was always planned to be 4 volumes long and that it lasted longer than originally intended due to extra characters popping in.

All in all, it was a fun time. Its definitely a strange one compared to the other series in that all of the material needed to get the full picture of why things are happening are spread out across the entire franchise. To fully understand everything in this manga you need to know what happens in:

  • Index: New Testament Volume 11,
  • Railgun's Daihaseisai Arc,
  • Railgun's Dream Ranker Arc, and
  • the Biohacker SS which was bundled with the Accelerator anime BD/DVD releases

In fact this manga actually helps to connect all the threads from these arcs together.

Like Railgun, the bulk of it is still readable without knowing all of the prior details but the manga won't explain some minor but albeit important plot points that it expects you to know about.

I want Railgun's director to direct the eventual anime series! Smile
